*** [observe these families of behavior at living]

Poem By Daniel Falb

I dwell in Possibility...
Emily Dickinson


observe these families of behavior at living. now we have the day of six billion.
historical battles reenact us and we, them.

overwhelmed by histamines many therefore are born naturally.......... a carnival
rehearsed for years, but never staged for years.

..........................superior forms of shame, of sterilization, when you're a kitten.
the production of the face as hair removal and world fair.

crystal palace exhibits the very fire of nations and of natality................. here is
the address of a shrub, a small leaf, a clump of cells.

i entered the national pavilion and exited as an extended family. I transplanted
in 1967 the first human heart—into twins.

convenient walkways link the sands, convenient run times light them up
flamingly, the biennale. monochrome colored-in microphages.

.........................which phase of work is that and what of it remains. the rejection
of the organs. the rejection of—the hand, the artist.

Translation: Christian Hawkey
